Mission out of Africa

The Chapter confirms our willingness to live a missionary commitment outside Africa.

a. The Chapter asks the General Council to consolidate our commitments where we are already present by appointing young confreres for their first appointment as well as stagiaires.

b. The Chapter asks confreres to maintain their collaboration with lay people, with friends and with former confreres whether this collaboration be voluntary or paid.

c. The Chapter asks the General Council to explore other possible foundations, in a realistic way, taking into consideration questions of visas and the viability of communities. It recommends that priority be given to invitations from local Churches interested in the Mission towards the African World. Any such initiative should be co-ordinated at the level of the Society.
